A Case of Benign Cytophagic Histiocytic Panniculitis

Abstract

Cytophagic histiocytic panniculitis is a histiocytic disorder which is characterized by recurrent subcutaneous nodules, fever, pancytopenia, and abnormal hepatocyte function. Most patients had systemic involvement with hepatosplenomegaly and pancytopenia and, after a chronic course, usually developed a hemorrhagic diathesis that led to death. Rarely reported cases were shown to have had a non-fatal course. We report herein a case of cytophagic histiocytic panniculitis in the trunk and both upper arms of 34-year-old woman who had a benign course and also showed histopatholoigcally lipomembranous change in the subcutaneous lesion.
